Actor Mark Wahlberg was in Cleveland on Thursday for a special preview of his family's new restaurant, Wahlburgers Cleveland.

The VIP event was invitation only, but that didn't stop a ton of fans from stopping by to sneak a peek outside the restaurant's downtown location at 2106 Ontario Street, across from the JACK Cleveland Casino.

There's no word yet on when Wahlburgers Cleveland will be open to the public.
